  • More evidence of anti-white bias at Google

    American Thinker ^ | 12 Apr, 2024 | Noel S. Williams
    Following Google’s anti-white Gemini debacle, no one in their right minds needs convincing of their discriminatory practices anymore. Still, it’s appropriate to document another example of anti-white bias at Google. It’s almost unfortunate that Google makes some good products. It instigates a form of cognitive dissonance because they are so woke -- and sometimes worthy of boycott. The latest example being their new AI photo editing tools available to Google Photos users. Or is it more sinister than simply being woke? On the high-profile webpage touting the Photos enhancements are several images showing before and after shots. What they don’t...
  • Google Commits to Deleting Browsing Data to Resolve ‘Incognito’ Lawsuit (NOT April fools!)

    As part of a settlement agreement in a lawsuit alleging unauthorized tracking by the company, Google will erase a vast collection of data encompassing the web-browsing histories of millions of users. The class action lawsuit, initiated in 2020, leveled accusations against Google for purportedly deceiving users regarding Chrome's tracking mechanisms while using the private “Incognito” browsing mode. The lawsuit claimed that Google's promotional materials and privacy statements failed to adequately disclose the extent of data collection, including specifics about the websites visited by users.

    Federal authorities in the US asked Google for the names, addresses, telephone numbers and user activity of the accounts that watched certain YouTube videos between January 1 and 8, 2023, according to unsealed court documents viewed by Forbes. People who watched those videos while they weren't logged into an account weren't safe either, because the government also asked for their IP addresses. The investigators reportedly ordered Google to hand over the information as part of an investigation into someone who uses the name "elonmuskwhm" online. Authorities suspect that elonmuskwhm is selling bitcoin for cash and is, thus, breaking money laundering...

    Front Page Magazine ^ | 29 Mar, 2024 | Daniel Greenfield
    Big Tech monopoly finally reveals why it’s censoring Front Page Magazine. When Front Page Magazine applied to join Google’s AdSense advertising program, we were turned down. Since Google, like other Big Tech monopolies, has censored and deplatformed us in the past, we weren’t too shocked. But this time, Google told us why we had been banned. Usually Big Tech monopolies censor, shadowban and deplatform you without telling you why. But the Google AdSense rejection told us what we could do to make our way into the good graces of the company that dominates online search and advertising, controlling what much...

    The Chinese Communist Party has aggressively built up its military, expanding its arsenal of both conventional and nuclear capabilities. The growth was largely funded by its rival, the United States.That is one of the arguments made by James Fanell, a retired U.S. Navy captain, and Bradley Thayer, a senior fellow at the Center for Security Policy, a Washington-based think tank, during a recent interview with EpochTV’s “American Though Leaders“ program.“The Chinese Navy now is over 150 naval combatants greater than the U.S. Navy. They are now the largest navy in terms of numbers of hulls and tonnage,” said Mr. Fanell,...

    You really need to keep an eye on the Department of Injustice these days because you never know what they're up to. The latest example comes to us from Forbes this week. It involves Google and a collection of YouTube videos that have attracted the attention of the feds. It's not just the creators of the videos who are of interest, however. Forbes uncovered warrants showing that the FBI had demanded user data on everyone who watched particular videos. We're talking about tens of thousands of viewers in some cases. It remains unclear how many of these cases resulted in...

    If you've ever jokingly wondered if your search or viewing history is going to "put you on some kind of list," your concern may be more than warranted. In now unsealed court documents reviewed by Forbes, Google was ordered to hand over the names, addresses, telephone numbers, and user activity of Youtube accounts and IP addresses that watched select YouTube videos, part of a larger criminal investigation by federal investigators. The videos were sent by undercover police to a suspected cryptocurrency launderer under the username "elonmuskwhm." In conversations with the bitcoin trader, investigators sent links to public YouTube tutorials on...
  • Google Changes Definition of 'Bloodbath' Following Trump Rally

    outkick.com ^ | March 21, 2024 | Bobby Burack
    Google was the chief promulgator of the Donald Trump "bloodbath" hoax over the weekend, flooding its search results with articles that deceptively framed the former president's comment. Trump predicted that re-electing Joe Biden would stir an economic "bloodbath," while specifically referencing the automotive industry at a rally last weekend. Yet nearly every headline Google generated on the topic led users to an article skimping over the context, suggesting Trump warned of his plans to provoke a civil war. Google understands it can no longer lead users to such deceptive headlines. Most Americans know what Trump said by now. Therefore, Google...

    “When I tell you what a word means," Google Dumpty said in rather a scornful tone, "it means just what I choose it to mean — neither more nor less." My apologies to the great Lewis Carroll for butchering his fine words to fit my theme, but that's entirely the point of this column — and exactly what your betters at Google just did to our glorious English language. Everyone who has ever used, heard, or read the word "bloodbath" knows it has multiple meanings. And thank goodness for that, since literal bloodbaths (like the one Hamas committed in Israel...

    Google has been putting its thumb on the scale to help Democratic candidates win the presidency in the last four election cycles, during which it censored Republicans, according to a right-leaning media watchdog. The Media Research Center published a report alleging 41 instances of “election interference” by the search engine since 2008. The MRC published a report accusing Google of having “utilized its power to help push to electoral victory the most liberal candidates … while targeting their opponents for censorship.” The report comes weeks after AllSides conducted an analysis which found that news aggregator Google News skewed even more...

This is the kind of sentiment you used to only hear in faculty lounges, freshman dormitories and left-wing struggle sessions. But times are changing. These are the words not of some blue-haired student, but of Jack Krawczyk, one of Silicon Valley’s most influential figures. Krawczyk is the senior director of product management for Gemini, Google’s main group of artificial-intelligence models. Krawczyk, who tweeted that in 2018, was the person primarily responsible for the implosion of the obscenely woke Google Gemini AI last month....

"MRC researchers have found 41 times where Google interfered in elections over the last 16 years, and its impact has surged dramatically, making it evermore harmful to democracy.
